Five Unexpected Reasons Why People Want to Buy From You

In case you would like to run a successful eCommerce business, you might want to learn more about your potential customers and their preferences. People will never buy from your company: it is always personal. If you would like to provide what they are looking for, it is time to figure out what makes them tick and open their wallet, typing their credit card details in the small boxes. Read five unusual reasons why customers might decide to buy from you and not somebody else.

1.   They Feel Appreciated

You need to let your potential customers know that you value their business, and appreciate their visit to your site. Automate your communication, and send out updates. Make sure that you personalize every email and newsletter, and send out offers that are relevant to them. If you know that your customer has a cat, don’t send out dog products if you own an online pet shop. Make your customers feel valued, appreciated, and personally looked after, even if you never meet them.

2.   They Feel Like You are Doing them a Favor

Some customers are so happy to find the exact product they have been hunting for months that no price is too high. If you have a rare or unique product that is not available elsewhere, you can get them to buy almost immediately. Read an additional 20 tips to improve conversion rate on your website and get people to visit your online store with the clear intention of buying.

3.   You Offer Added Value

Instead of trying to enter the price competition, you should always think about ways of offering more value than other companies. Add free shipping, or even a handy guide to every order. It will not cost you much, but you can get more people to buy from you and not other companies. Give them something that they appreciate and believe in, such as reorder reminders, or an eBook to go with their purchase. If you sell small electronic items, you can throw in free batteries, too.

4.   You Have Testimonials

When people shop online, they often check the reputation of the company and visit the testimonial page. Make sure that you ask for feedback from all your customers, as word-of-mouth advertising is powerful. You will be more trusted if you have a good feedback score and real people send you comments about your products.

5.   They Can Relate to You on a Personal Level

People who want to be like you, or feel like you have a lot in common with them will be more likely to buy your products. Don’t forget about the importance of personal branding when setting up your online store. Get people to comment on your videos, connect with them on social media, and ask them to participate in questionnaires. This way, they will feel like they already know you, and can trust your brand.

Whenever you are searching for ways of impressing your potential customers, try to find out what makes them buy from you and not other online store owners.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
